A northern Minnesota man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison in the death of his wife who was crushed by a totem pole. Carl Muggli faced a possible life sentence if he had been convicted of first-degree murder.
The trial for a man accused of using a totem pole to kill his wife will be moved out of Koochiching County. State District Court Judge Charles LeDuc has ordered the trial be held in Beltrami County, about 115 miles away, because of pretrial publicity.
Bail has been set at $1 million for a totem pole carver charged with second-degree murder in the death of his wife, who died in November after a 700-pound log fell on her.
A Minnesota man told police his wife was accidentally crushed to death by a totem pole last year, but now investigators say he meant to kill his wife.
